College Basketball Rankings: Georgetown At No. 16 For Second Straight Week

Georgetown ranks No. 16 in the country for the second straight week in the latest AP Top 25 poll.

The Associated Press released its newest Top 25 men's basketball poll, and the Georgetown Hoyas (9-1) held steady at No. 16, marking their third straight week in the poll.

In their lone game since the last poll came out, the Hoyas dealt the American U. Eagles an 81-55 defeat. Markel Stars led Georgetown with 18 points on 6-of-8 shooting, while Henry Sims added 17 points and six assists and Hollis Thompson contributed 15 points and eight boards. The Hoyas shot 58.8 percent while limiting the Eagles to 40.7 percent.

The Syracuse Orange (11-0), Georgetown's rivals in the Big East, rank No. 1 in the poll for the second straight week, boosted in part by their 88-72 win against the NC State Wolfpack on Saturday. Syracuse received 53 of a possible 64 first-place votes. The Ohio St. Buckeyes, Kentucky Wildcats, Louisville Cardinals, and North Carolina Tar Heels round out the top five for the second straight week. Indeed, the only change in the top 10 came at the No. 8 spot, with the Xavier Musketeers dropping from No. 8 to No. 14.
